Denny From SCV
  – Firefox crashes a lot – What browser is better and more secure.

Linda From SCV   new Macbook pro – wanted legacy genealogy program that sister has. Legacy site said she could load it if she can load Windows through Bootcamp. She doesn’t know anything about Bootcamp or what it is

Browser – can you have IE Explorer and Edge on your computer at the same time?

Denny From SCV  – Every time he’s off his computer for 15 minutes he has to sign back in. How can he stop having to log-in via a password.

Agnes From SCV  – Received a notice from Avast that she needs to update Firefox. How does she get Firefox to let her know.

Denny From SCV  – How does he program his Nest thermostat

Kathy From SCV  – Recently, her hard drive light is continuously flashing (no beeping sounds). What’s happening

Dave P From SCV  – Malwarebytes 3.0 premium – new version. He likes it because it incorporates anti-ransomware. They are saying you don’t need to use an anti-virus with 3.0 but also say it is compatible with anti-virus programs. Can/should you really use it without an A/V.

Q&A with CIPCUG: Round 3

Welcome to the 3rd round of Q&A with CIPCUG.

Listen to Toby Scott answer the following submitted questions from CIPCUG’s Facebook Group Page in the player bar at the bottom of this page.

Question from Sue Nethercott: Do you know of any free software that will produce a decent stab at transcribing an audio or video (other than Youtube close captioning)? I’m not after perfection, just something to considerably reduce the amount of typing I need to do, and the time taken.

Question from John Weigle: What’s a virtual desk and why might I want it?

Another question from Sue Nethercott: Which is the hottest social media platform these days, and are they used by different groups (e.g. generations) for different purposes?

Question from Tony Pizza: What’s the purpose of Homegroup? Doesn’t it do the same thing as a Workgroup?

Question from Sue Nethercott: What can I do with my old iPad 1?

Another question from Sue Nethercott: Which is the best antivirus, and should you have more than one?

Thanks, Sue Nethercott: What are the pros and cons of switching away from Windows to something else?
